amphorae Knossos

The Saffron Goddess (1600 B.C.) is a detail from a Minoan fresco depicting a saffron harvest. She sits supervising the plucking of flowers and the gleaning of stigmas for use in the manufacture of what is possibly a therapeutic drug. A mythological griffin, considered to be a combination of the body of a lion as king of the beasts and the head of an eagle, stands guard.
